My son needed boxing gloves a month ago, so I got him these.. the 14oz. ones...

http://www.martialartspride.com/labogl.html

They came in yesterday and he got to use them in class. Someone told him he needs 16oz. gloves. That kind of ticked me off. A month ago no one said a word. It took this long to get them (backorder).
So my question is, is there a noticable difference between the 14oz. and the 16oz.? I'm really not in the mood to pay to send them back for an exchange and then pay to ship the other ones.

I would be inclined to go with the 16 oz. gloves. Not a HUGE difference, but enough to warrant attention. Safety is worth the shipping.

How old is your son? If he's not very old than i don't see what the diff 2 0z would do. MAKE SURE TO USE HADNWRAPS either way.
